municipality. City officials tried to kill two birds with one stone: the first problem was providing proper transportation and adding a tourist attraction that would intrigue tourists. The mile-long cable car connects Northern Greenwich with the Royal Docks on the north bank.
The company invested $56 million in the construction of the cable car as part of a 10-year sponsorship agreement.
The cable car has 34 carriages, reaching a height of 90 meters. The bird’s eye view from the cable car is a special experience. The trip in any direction lasts for about 10 minutes. If you catch a sunny day, you can enjoy spectacular views and also take the opportunity to visit Greenwich. However one cannot see the entire city from this point, rather the general area.
Each car can carry ten passengers, however there is generally not a long line. It is entirely possible to catch a car all to yourself. If the weather is stormy (strong winds, lightning storms, etc.), the cable car will be closed for periods of time.
